As noted in Seminole magazine, Sona Patel is an avid spa enthusiast who noticed a lack of affordable options in the Orlando area. Her solution was MicroSpa's technology-driven treatments, which have earned acclaim from Orlando Home & Leisure. Cushy massage chairs with far-infrared heat help evict knots and improve circulation, and sweat-inducing iSlim body wraps aim to oust toxins and promote weight loss. During teeth-whitening treatments, techs use hydrogen peroxide gel and an LED blue light to make teeth as bright as a newscaster's precocious hamster.
Often spotted at local fashion shows, bridal expos, and other events, Hair Connoisseurs Salon & MediSpa's assorted stylists, aestheticians, and ache easers coddle bodies with services for hair, nails, and skin in a flower-filled lakefront facility. In the salon, nimble shears create new styles for men and women, perms and relaxers alter hair textures, and highlights and color treatments get head threads to shimmer without weaving a false ponytail from sunbeams. Gauzy fabric hangs from the ceiling of the private room where trained massage therapists aim to reduce stress with soft kneading, direct pressure, or aromatherapy oil blends. At stone-topped manicure stations, technicians beautify fingers and toes with acrylic, fiberglass, and silk wrap nails, which can be tapped on coral stone accent columns to summon the ghosts of dried-out polish bottles.
At Altamonte Springs Body Contouring, technicians overseen by the medical director, Doctor of Chiropractic Ken Ross, firm and tighten faces and bodies without resorting to surgery. First, clients undergo an in-depth one-on-one consultation that determines how to custom tailor their treatments. They might qualify for a face-lifting microcurrent facial, a skin-sloughing microdermabrasion, or a collagen-boosting and tightening ultrasound or radio-frequency facial. Clients might also get an ultrasonic fat-reduction treatment designed to help clients to lose weight without dieting excessively or pushing their car to work every morning. The technicians track each client's progress throughout their treatments. The treatments are noninvasive and require no downtime.
Captained by Dr. James Young, the Goldfingers Skin Care staff fills the salon-style space with the latest in ultramodern med-spa and anti-aging technologies. Aestheticians enhance skin with treatments ranging from exfoliating microdermabrasion and chemical peels to permanent makeup application and laser hair removal. In private rooms, skilled massage therapists ease spinal pain with effulgent strokes and gentle nuzzles from resident kittens.
